Finished The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. The novel tells the story of Hadley Richardson and her marriage to Ernest Hemingway as his first wife. Hemingway was twenty-two when they married. Hadley was eight years his senior. The two met in Chicago and moved to Paris soon after they married.
McLain's prose is achingly true. I found myself so engrossed in Hadley and Hemingway's characters that I actually dreamed that I was Hadley. More than once.
Reading this book brought me back to my own writing and to my former appreciation of Hemingway's work, which I've now begun to re-read in the order in which it appears in the novel.
